Is ionisation enthalpy of potassium higher than that of sodium?

The ionisation enthalpy of potassium is lower than that of sodium.

Why the first ionisation energy of potassium is only a little less than the ionisation energy of sodium?

both are in the same period which accounts for closeness. they are nonetheless different because there are more protons in the nucleus which means electrons are brought closer to it so there is a higher ionisation energy or potential
